Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisors
Drug & Alcohol Peer Advisors (DAPAs) are a group of student leaders who have been trained to respond to questions about alcohol and other drug issues at Colgate. DAPAs provide an invaluable service to the University as health opinion leaders, resources to their peers, and ambassadors. They help to inform programs, policies, and other prevention strategies overseen by the Shaw Wellness Institute. To apply for a DAPA Grant, fill out this Google form.
The DAPAs also review the DAPA grants. DAPA grants are intended to support a fun, safe, and inclusive social environment at Colgate. These grants are geared towards encouraging inclusive and safe drinking environments for the Colgate community. The review committee funds registered events containing alcohol, and alcohol-free events. To that end, the grants fund: (1) substantial food items at registered parties with alcohol during high-risk nights (Wednesday through Saturday nights), and (2) food for alcohol-free events on Wednesday through Saturday nights. The grants do NOT fund alcohol, drinks, decorations, very small gatherings, or off-campus events.
